As always the meat here is top notch, we had the smoked salmon appetizer and it was delicious, generous side salads and very flavorful prime rib and chicken.

This was hands down one of the best meals I've ever had! The service, the food, the wine - EVERYTHING was exceptional. Even the key lime pie was second to none! Can't wait to come back next time we're in Cincy!!!

Jays or Redstone Grill is always a great place for lunch or dinner. The service stuff is top notch. The food is always excellent. Wide range of items, great salmon. Happy hour gets crowded. I think Monday is half off wine but I maybe wrong.
